Hahah... he blew a line in Truckin' when I saw Furthur in Ottawa and it just about made the show for me. My first Truckin' and Bobby forgot the words like back in the good old days!

Glad you got the experience, O "elderly hippie." What's a Truckin' without a blown Bobby lyric? Or a show without somebody blowing a lyric or an intro or something? You certainly know they're not lip synching :-)

Your line about the TP saying 'Forget Words Here' is still making me laugh . Check your email.

I cant believe you elderly hippies go and see this atrocity cover band...they are really, really bad....remember when i used to make fun of them ten years ago on here? Guess what? Its the same thing, only its ten years later. (well, its a little different, The greedy slobs named Lesh and Weir dont have the drummers anymore, for the simple reason they dont want to give them an equal share, they want to have the lions share to themselves)....good god you morons, open your fuckin eyes and ears.Phil Lesh is 70 years old for Christ sakes. They stink. If you say you listen to Further in your car or house, quite simply, you are a liar.

Jeez and there I was feelin' so young... I guess I must be living someone else's nostalgia trip...

And no I don't really listen to Furthur except when I was considering to get tickets for the 2 shows I've seen. Also I just HAD to hear the full Terrapin suite they did at Furthur Fest. Great stuff.

And for a 70 year old, Phil is still the most impressive musician in that band... never was or will be a bass player like this man.

The elderly hippies around here are getting younger and younger.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now


The Grateful Dead should have had a go at that one.

Good call, Rob. As I've learned, trolls are yummy for breakfast, with some Bob Dylan playing in the background.

It would be cool if Furthur covered this with all of them trading off verses and sharing the refrain. I would love to hear Phil singing this with his rich honest voice and seemingly ever-present smile.

"I would love to hear Phil singing this with his rich honest voice and seemingly ever-present smile."

It's that open, honest and unfussy approach that I enjoy too but I think you and I may well be the only two people here who feel that way about Phil's singing.

Heard him sing Eyes of the World and Franklin's Tower on 7/4/2009 with The Dead and it was simply splendid.

I choose to experience love for anything Phil tries to sing. It isn’t too hard – the man is my brother and we go back a ways. Yep, I love it when he sings, sure do.

I'm afraid, yes. Best I can say is that he's enthusiastic.
